What if Arizonans had only one place to buy vehicles, groceries, clothes, send their kids to school, purchase insurance, or secure financial services? Most of us would be slighted and feel like the singular choice for these items wouldn’t serve us well.

Unfortunately, our state government is pretty much a monopoly dominated by the GOP, from the governor’s office, both the Senate and the House in the Legislature, to the attorney general’s office, and even to the sheriff’s office in Maricopa County.

In other words, if we’re ever going to have checks and balances, cooperation, and compromises in our state government we need to end the stranglehold the Republican Party has on our state politics.

Come this November, independent voters need to help secure the state Senate for the Democrats so some of the strange far right GOP bills and/or ideas can either be stopped altogether or be vetoed.
